Aleta had a passion for cooking and trying new recipes. She loved her family, especially her children and grandchildren. She studied art and also enjoyed painting, needlework, reading, and gardening. She was a devoted Catholic who faithfully prayed the Rosary. She was a founding member and the first Consecrated Bride of Brides of the Most Blessed Trinity, an Apostolate that prays and offers sacrifices for priests and vocations to the priesthood. She gave herself to God as a martyr for priests 27 years ago in 1987.
The family would like to send a warm thank you for all the prayers and kindness given through her illness.
